Mobile broadcast tuner lets OEMs design one platform for all standards

Mirics Semiconductor's poly-band tuner for mobile digital broadcast reception enables handset designers to easily add mobile broadcast reception to support any global standard. The MSI001 offers low power consumption and can receive all current broadcast standards, including DVB-H, T-DMB, ISDB-T, DAB-IP, MediaFlo, DAB, DRM and even AM/FM.

Mirics also designed the MSI001 to be configured to receive other standards, or unknown future standards, without any cost or performance penalty. An example of this flexibility is the impending release of the Chinese MDTV standards.

The device provides coverage for all major broadcast bands ranging from 100 kHz to 1.9 GHz (covering LW/MW/SW, L-Band and VHF Bands II, III, and UHF Bands IV and V). And it exhibits a low power consumption, for example 46 mA in continuous DVB-H operation in the L-Band.

In lots of the 10,000 units, the part sells for $3.50 each. More information is available at www.mirics.com.
